[LETTERS TO THE EDITOR]Not the longest mural

On the front page of your newspaper Saturday you have a photograph of a mural with a caption that reads: “Bystanders watching as the world’s longest mural is installed at the Cheonggye stream in downtown Seoul yesterday. The 186-meter-long ceramic mural depicts King Jeongjo’s trip to Hwaseong, with his mother and servants, to celebrate his father’s 60th birthday.”
It is sad to note that a newpaper of your high caliber would print such completely incorrect information.
The Great Wall of Los Angleles is in fact the world’s longest mural, coming in at 839 meters. In the future, please do a better job of fact checking before publishing such statements.
